I too was taken in by this company. I received a very nice email telling me how qualified I was for their sales position...see letter below: I had pretty much the same experience as everyone else! Don't waste your time if you get this in your yourself a BIG favor and delete the message!      

We pulled your posted resume with respect to our employment opportunity, and do feel as though your qualifications could fit into our success as a company. We are doing interviews this week, Leslie, and are very interested in discussing what you can contribute to our team and how we envision incorporating your experience into our overall plan. If you are interested in being a part of our continued growth and success, please call Monday or Tuesday to set up an interview. Interviews will be held on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

Innovative is a publishing company specializing in promotional products with school and teams in local areas. Our account base ranges from the high schools, colleges, universities; all the way up to the semi-pro and professional teams. Our in house designed and published products include: media guides, programs, sports posters, game tickets, banners, pocket schedules, coupon books, and student cards. The newest sector of our company is focused primarily on fund raising with the schools through the partnering with various booster clubs and fund raising organizations driving revenues for these local schools. We are a growing company with several different divisions and opportunities, so we are looking for an ambitious candidate that can take over an existing local territory; maintain it and grow it. 
As a representative for our company your responsibilities would include: customer service, account management, public relations, as well as new business development. Our regional managers have developed your local territory, so you would take over existing accounts, maintain a book of business but of course grow the market. This position not only requires contact with our schools and teams but also to their sponsors whom are incurring the cost for our product development.

Some of our current sponsors for our existing accounts include: Russel, Under Amour, Papa-Johns Pizza, Subway, Quizno's, Pepsi, Honda, Bank of America as well as more localized companies such as hospitals, car dealerships, restaurants, and other independently owned and operated businesses.

We have put together a compensation package which includes a base salary plus commission, based on a quota system. Our first year average account executive will make 55k-60k their first year, although we certainly do have first year representatives that are exceeding our quotas and making 100k+ but that is above average. This package does include medical benefits and a retirement plan in addition to the compensation.

So if our career overview interests you, and you feel as though you can contribute to our  continued growth please call to set up an interview (Monday or Tuesday). We have not posted this position, we hand-picked our candidates from your work experience, location, and posted resume. So do not re-email, us please call. We would not have contacted you Leslie, if you did not meet our qualifications. Our interviews will be held this week only on Wednesday or Thursday.

Thank you,
Rebecca Watkins
Innovative Human Resource Manager
